This should be a relatively simple job for an experienced book cover designer!
I am providing you with a 'Marketing Now' logo to be used as the book heading and an image containing all of the approx 130 contributors.
Can you please use this image of the contributors as the background (probably for front cover, back cover, spine and sleeves, but feel free to surprise me).
On top of the contributors image please use a red #B70002 colour overlay with approximately 70% to 80% opacity so that we can still see the contributors image below.
I am a little open to using another color if you feel that it is better.
On top of this please layer the "Marketing Now" logo that I have provided you.
Also on the front page I'd like the subheading, the 2 testimonials, the author name and the Foreword writer.
Use my author image where you think it works best. This could be on the front cover, on the back cover or on the back sleeve.
I am open to using additional images, but this is probably not necessary as I don't want the cover to look too busy
On the back cover, please include add a "Publishing partners" section and in this section include the 5 logos of my publishing partners that I have provided you with.
(SEMrush, HubSpot, BuzzSumo, AVADO and MobileMonkey.)
Please use placeholders for the barcode section - I will provided you with the actual barcode towards the end of the contest.
Finally, please also include one of the "Author Academy Elite" logos attached to include on the back cover - I have attached 4 to choose from.
